Getting a "Round" to a Birthday Card

Today I have very simple card layout to share with you.  It was not what I intended when I sat down to create, but I think that is the fun of creativity!  I think this layout is very versatile! 

Here are the details

Basic Black card stock base 4 1/4"x11" scored in half the long way
Copper Foil Sheets 4 1/8"x 5 3/8" and a strip 1/2"x4 1/8"
Designer Series Paper 4"x 5 1/4" (I used the retired DSP "Urban Underground")
Basic Black circle die cut using Stitched Shapes
Very Vanilla circle die cut using Stitched Shapes
Copper Foil Sheets scallop circle die cut using Layering Circles Dies
Stamped the greeting (from the long retired Paper Pumpkin "Hey Man")

Can you tell that I added a little Wink of Stella shimmer to the "happy"?

I used Stampin' Dimenstionals to pop the scallop/greeting off the black circle.  And, because I am cheap smart I use the following technique to get the most out of my copper foil.  By cutting out the center of the layer I can get the scallop circle and the 1/2" strip with some left over!

While I used retired paper for this project I think the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper would be a good alternative.

I added the card to this gift bag -- I used the Cheers Dies , a sneak peek of something that will be available to you beginning September 4.

Here is another card I made substituting Real Red Card Stock for the Copper Foil.  For this one I used    Well Said for the greeting
